Veuve Clicquot Brut Rare Vintage Rose 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

La Grande Dame Rosé is produced only from the eight grand cru vineyards Madame Clicquot purchased in her lifetime, with still Pinot Noir from Bouzy, a grand cru vineyard especially favored by Madame Clicquot.

Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin:
Founded in 1772, Veuve Clicquot is among the most prestigious Champagne Houses. Its extensive holdings, many originally purchased by Madame Clicquot, stretch throughout the top-rated areas of the Champagne region and are exceptional in size and quality.

Founded in 1772, Veuve Clicquot is among the most prestigious Champagne Houses. Its extensive holdings, many originally purchased by Madame Clicquot, stretch throughout the top-rated areas of the Champagne region and are exceptional in size and quality. As in madame Clicquot's day, bottles age in the House's vast, vaulted cellars in Reims, portions of which were constructed some 2,000 years ago by the Romans. The remarkable Madame Clicquot (1777-1866) is considered one of the first business-women of the modern era. Widowed in 1805 at the age of 27, Madame Veuve Clicquot (born Ponsardin) defied every convention of the day to take the helm of her late husband's small Champagne House. She personally supervised cellar activities and introduced innovative production techniques still used today. Champagne Veuve Clicquot is known internationally for its classically styled and full-bodied Champagne. Read less

A total package wine -- the fruit flavors, the surprising kick, the fantastic color and well integrated bubbles prove to me that this is a finely honed recipe. Perhaps my lack of interest in Champagne is the only reason this did not score higher in my book. Still, a fine wine for a fine New Year's celebration.

Nice golden colour, fine bubbles but for some reason don't seem to last to a 2nd glass. Sweet biscuit to start before a slightly sour kick finishes. For the price paid, a very good Champagne.

A waxy texture sets the stage for the graphite, honey and whole-grain bread notes. It shows some intensity, a fine mousse and open structure for aging. Good length. Drink now. (BS) Wine Spectator. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. 1999 Veuve Clicquot Vintage Brut 750ml
